The pope denounced the situation that many children find themselves in as a result of their parents being divorced, and he said that even though the Church may understand people that remarry, its still a dangerous situation for children.

He said that the majority of those who feel orphaned are not children without parents but children with a surplus of parents.


The pope made his remarks during a meeting with Brazilian bishops who were in Rome visiting the departments of the Vatican as they do every five years.

Benedict XVI
(original Portuguese)

To resolve the issue, he asked families to not be fooled by false life models promoted through films and television. He also encouraged all to know forgiveness, help children that suffer, and introduce love and beauty to the life of others.
